Welcome to Katha Dance Theatre’s virtual Fall Session! We are pleased to offer the finest Kathak education online this session, which means that our classes are open to dancers across the globe. Kathak is a traditional North Indian dance form founded on four pillars of movement: rhythmic footwork, pirouettes, facial expressions, and gestural storytelling. It is a beautiful, elegant art form that is still evolving today.

Our school is led by Rita Mustaphi, Kathak master and disciple of the legendary guru Pt. Birju Maharaj. All of KDT’s educational programs are grounded in his teachings, and Rita has been at the forefront of Kathak’s evolution for decades thanks her time under his tutelage.

Please read our session schedule below to find your preferred class, and then enroll by filling out our registration form and making your tuition payment (linked above). Note that final class placements are at the discretion of our teaching staff.
